“Not bad!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

First watch was enjoyable but not as good as Flour Power or Another Broken Egg. I loved FW's pancakes, getting the blueberry and carrot cake in two different Trifecta meals. Both were the highlight of the meal.
The coffee is very bitter, and I think they know it; they have flavored creamers sitting on the table and you have to ask for regular. It's not a big deal, but worth mentioning. Instead of refills, my wife and I got OJ (which was delicious)!
I'd like to return for lunch; their quinoa bowls sound like they're worth trying!
All in all, it was a good breakfast.

Jeff C. - Thank you for visiting! We will share all of your comments with the team. We especially take our coffee very serious and will make sure it's being brewed and served properly. While it should be strong, it should never taste bitter. We are thrilled you liked our pancakes so much and appreciate all of your valuable feedback. We hope to see you back to try our lunch soon!

“Any Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

I was impressed by the fact that you can order breakfast, lunch, or dinner any time. My husband is a breakfast eater and I usually prefer lunch so no worry about times. The food was good and what big pancakes! The restaurant was bright and clean. The waitresses were very attentive to patrons.

“Consistently good food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

This restaurant is set back in a plaza off Hwy. 98 but easy to find. It is a great place for breakfast and lunch. I usually order the "Trifecta" which consists of eggs, choice of meat and a Belgian waffle. What more could you want? Service is always prompt and friendly. Definitely a PCB favorite for our family!

“GREAT PLACE FOR BREAKFAST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

We loved this place, even went twice in a week. If you sign up for member ship (Free) you get a free meal on your birthday. We went on Tuesday and it was pancakes for 2.00. It was as big as your plate. I had the Carrot Cake Pancake and it was scrumptious. I can't wait to go back for more. As far as price, well 2 bucks that is a good price.
